iTunes imageGalatia Films has been successfully coordinating with Johnny Depp’s publicist to set up an interview for our next upcoming Reclaiming the Blade film tentatively titled Sons of Fire. Famous Hollywood swordmaster Bob Anderson taught Johnny some of his now famous first swashbuckling moves and was featured in the original Reclaiming the Blade film just prior to his passing, leaving a legacy in Tinseltown that will likely never be repeated.

The long awaited sequel to the #1 iTunes Documentary, Reclaiming the Blade, has officially been announced, with the recent launch of a new funding campaign. “This second film will have all the excitement of the first film including more great celebrity involvement and the best of the best sword teams, clubs, stunt trainers, blade-smiths and more,” says producer Marshall Wells, also known for working with Galatia Films on the popular webcast, Hobbit in 5.
In addition to exploring further with Hollywood stunt trainers, martial artist, and academic experts, this second documentary will focus on exploring the mysteries of the swordsmiths and their craft in making real historical blades just as they were created thousands of years ago.
